Welcome to Hawkins, Indiana

Over the month of October I did some daily sketches leading up to the second season premier of the Netflix show, Stranger Things. I am a big fan of the show and thought it would be fun to do some fan art.  with my morning warm ups. Love to make some stickers or a poster of these for the convention season next year.

Fall Festivities

We are in full on Autumn here in Minnesota. Well let’s be honest, it’s November 9th in Minnesota, so probably even more like winter. We had so much going that I sadly neglected this here blog. Let’s correct that right now with a run down of some of the cool shenanigans we’ve been up to.

Minnesota Makers- You can now get my shirt “Buddies” at the great Robbinsdale, MN craft store, Minnesota Makers. It’s a great store but if you live near the Twin Cities it’s certainly worth checking out.

Let’s Get Weird

Well look it here, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, October. This Halloween season I have two really fun Minnesota based projects that I am excited to finally share with everyone.

First up is promotional art for the Haunted Basement. Haunted Basement is a annual thrill attraction a marriage of installation art and theatrical set design. It’s super fun and scary. Each year there ask a local artist to do a poster and promo material for the event, and I honored to be asked to do the designs for this year. the them is breakfast as they are operating out of an old General Mills building.

For the entire year of 2017, my printing friends at Chux has been working with artists to make a shirt designs for every month of the year. Twelve different creators get to spotlight their talents on shirts sold exclusively at local boutique stores, I Like You and I Like You Too. When asked to be involved my only request was to get the month of October. “The Spirit of Minnesota” is my contribution to the Collab series and is available now. Perfect for any Halloween loving Minnesotan!

Comic Book Roundup

Sorry for the radio silence here. Been a crazy busy summer. So crazy my appendix decided it couldn’t keep up and split. Regardless our summer was filled with a lot of fun and a lot of work. Which I will run down all the cool comic projects I have had going on since I last posted.

Generations: Captain Marvel was released! Had such a blast working with Margaret Stohl and Jordan Boyd on this book. Generations has been a really entertaining series of one shots and was really honored to be a part of it.

Even better that I FINALLY got to work with Eisner award wining colorist, Matt Wilson. This issue drops in November.
